So Long Summer 2

For my birthday, we had planned on camping at Wahtum Lake, but our trip got rained out. Lucky for us, the whole state is uncharted territory, so finding a back up plan was easy. We decided to head to Bend for two nights. While we were there, we took a day trip to the Painted Hills. Don't know if y'all have seen the Painted Hills, but they were stunning and as a bonus, we got to pretend we were visiting another planet. On our way home, we stopped at the Metolius, which is hands-down the most beautiful river I have ever seen! Perry caught his first ever bull trout there, a fish on his bucket list, so he was very happy. We have now decided that going on a mini-vacation is the ONLY way to spend a birthday. (Shout out to my mom who took care of our cats while we were gone!)
